Quite often we’re asked if we can replicate an old heritage gate that someone’s seen and fallen in love with. The usual scenario is that you’ve got an older property which has lost the original gates but you haven’t been able to buy an old gate from anywhere. You really need something ‘old’ to suit. The one gate we’ve been asked about the most is the one shown in the Vic Tourism ad for Daylesford and Hepburn Springs. This gate graces the driveway entrance to the historic Wombat Park Homestead with it’s magnificent gardens.
The old Australian cast jointed farm gates from the turn of the 20th century are harder to find but as popular as ever due to the nostalgia around owning a heritage gate like those on our grandparents and great-grandparents old farms. Demand for old gates for sale has pushed prices quite high despite them being in really bad condition. We are often asked about restoring old gates but quite often the old “drag & drop gates” as they were once known, are not economically viable to fix. The bottom bars are
The purchase of a new gate usually gives rise to a few questions. The most common concerns are whether a new gate will fit; how much it will cost to get it delivered – especially if it’s coming from interstate and thirdly how long it will take to get it. This video address all those concerns and more. I hope it helps you too …
We spent ages searching in person and on the web for someone who could produce a quality wrought iron gate in a traditional style at a fair price. We weren’t interested in cheap and shoddy but by the same token we also weren’t prepared to pay for underwriting someone’s over-expensive website, either. I liked the look and feel of Farmweld’s website straight away, because you could tell these were people who were passionate about what they were doing and
Our gates are absolutely gorgeous – thank you! They’ve turned out exactly as we had imagined them (if not better) and we couldn’t be happier with the result.
Thanks again for all your help in developing the design, and for the outstanding workmanship of the end product – we’ll be referring people your way without hesitation.
We are delighted with the gates, we love the design and my husband loves the robust construction. I can’t tell you how many people have asked about it and we happily refer them back to you!
I just wanted to send this quick email to say a huge thankyou for all your patience and help with me in deciding on our railway gates. They fit perfectly and the kids love opening and shutting them each day. They are also successfully keeping the dog in as well. I am sending through some photos of the gates with this email too.
Please find attached a picture of the gate that you made for us, we are both very happy with the end result, it really complements the picket fence.
We have had a lot of people comment on how nice it looks. Thankyou for your help and professional service.
Farmweld understood exactly what we wanted and came up with this design that needed no alteration. The gate and panels are really well made and look fantastic at the start of our drive. We have received many positive comments from friends and neighbours. We recommend Farmweld to anyone who wants to have gates or panels made for a special area around their home or farm.
A big thank you for the wonderful Estate gates – the big gate has made such a difference to the front of the property (as you can see from the picture) and has attracted several admiring comments, and the three smaller gates go perfectly with the Australian Colonial style of the house. It was easy to fix the rabbit mesh using the additional bars you provided, and this works really well, providing
